55 Characteristics of Love

55 CHARACTERISTICS OF LOVE

What is love?

Love is something that we as physical beings will never be able to fully comprehend. The word is commonly tossed around and often assumed to be known by many.  Some people spend their whole lives searching for the meaning of an “emotion,” whose true properties are consistently concealed by projections of influenced minds. Love has been misinterpreted for so long, it is no wonder we as human beings lack the capacity to fathom its true meaning in our personal lives.

101 Positive Words

POSITIVE WORD CLOUD

Over the years, I’ve compiled a list of words that [I feel] have positive attributes associated with them.  At first glance, some of the words may seem as though they should probably be on a different list – I mean, how is ‘comprehend’ a positive word?!  Well, think about how it feels to be challenged by an idea, only to later grasp its significance and look back with full comprehension.  Looking back, you realize how far your understanding has grown on this particular idea, and that understanding, is a very positive thing, my friend!  If we are not constantly gaining insight, we are either losing it or simply maintaining the status quo, and to me?  Those attributes are anything but positive!
